I have been in a funk because my cactus and succulents have not bloomed! But...while watering this morning, I discovered a little bloom on my Huernia schneiferiana growing near the base. I am sooo excited!!! It is dime-size and a beautiful magenta.
Yes, I broke another expensive clay pot! Cheap ones last for years, but the minute I pay an exorbitant price, that's a sure sign of impending doom for the pot!
Euphorbia obesa chistata- I'm not sure if this one will flower. The convoluted ribs swell as they absorb moisture--and although I rarely water it, the ribs always look full. I keep this one somewhat shaded from the west sun. After my newly planted Desert Museum Palo Verde produces enough shade, I will plant it in the ground.
